I WAS VERY SKEPTICAL TO BOOK A CARNIVAL CRUISE FOR MY FAMILY OF 5W/3 TEENAGE BOYS AND ANOTHER FAMILY OF 4W/2 TEENAGE BOYS. OUR FAMILY HAD CRUISED CELEBRITY AND THE OTHER FAMILY HAD NEVER CRUISED. I WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR BOOKING THIS VACATION. I WAS ALWAYS UNDER THE IMPRESSION CARNIVAL WAS ON THE LOW END OF THE CRUISE INDUSTRY SPECTRUM. TRAVEL AGENT URGED US TO TRY IT. HE ASSURED US THAT CARNIVAL HAD DEFINITELY UPGRADED ITS` IMAGE, AND WE DEFINITELY WOULDN`T BE DISAPPOINTED ESPECIALLY WITH THE KIDS. I WAS A NERVOUS WRECK NOT KNOWING WHAT TO EXPECT. IF THE EXPERIENCE WAS AWFUL, I WOULD BE TO BLAME. WELL, LET ME TELL YOU - WE HAD AN ABSOLUTELY AWESOME CRUISE. THE SHIP WAS BEAUTIFUL. IT WAS IMMACULATE. OUR CABINS(BALCONIES FOR ADULTS, INSIDE FOR KIDS) TOOK OUR BREATH AWAY. THEY WERE MUCH LARGER THAN CELEBRITY. I WILL NEVER AGAIN BOOK A CABIN WITHOUT A BALCONY! THE FOOD WAS GREAT, ENTERTAINMENT WAS ALWAYS AN ENJOYABLE NIGHT. THE TEENAGERS HAD THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES
